Setting Up the Room for Polycom People On Content™
For the best results, follow these guidelines for setting up Polycom People On
Content™:
Polycom, Inc.
•
Use the Polycom EagleEye HD camera with Polycom HDX 9000 series and
Polycom HDX 8000 series systems. Polycom recommends using a
Polycom EagleEye II, Polycom EagleEye III, Polycom EagleEye HD or
Polycom EagleEye HD 1080 camera with People on Content. If you are
using a Polycom EagleEye 1080 or Polycom EagleEye View camera,
activating People on Content automatically reduces the resolution to 720p.
•
Create a flat, consistent background color using a screen or matte-finish
paint in green or blue. Make sure the background has no shadows or glare.

Integrator’s Reference Manual for Polycom HDX Systems
•
Make sure that the background and the presenter are well lit. For example,
use a minimum of two 250 W halogen lights on the background and one
on the presenter.
•
Experiment with different room and lighting arrangements until the best
results are achieved.

Cables
When connecting two Polycom HDX microphone host devices, a cross-over cable
is required. To build a custom cross-over cable for this purpose, you should use
shielded CAT5 or better cable. Each end of the custom cable should have a
shielded RJ-45 plug connector that connects to a Polycom HDX microphone host
device. The maximum supported cable length is 100 feet.
Due to differing use of the twisted pairs within the cable, the pinout for this custom
CAT5 cross-over cable is not the same as the pinout that is used for standard
Ethernet cables. Do not use standard Ethernet cables. Instead, for best cable
performance, refer to the following pinout information to create this custom CAT5
cross-over cable.
Drawings and part numbers are provided for reference only. Polycom claims no
responsibility or liability for the quality, performance, or reliability of cables based on

Custom Cabling for Polycom HDX Microphones
You can create a custom-length cable that connects a Polycom HDX system to
a Polycom HDX microphone. Start with the microphone cable (part number
2457-23216-001), and cut off the P1 end. Using the wiring tables shown, create
a custom cable from the microphone to a wall plate or other interfacing device.
Next, from the wall plate or other interfacing device, run shielded CAT5 or
better cable to the Polycom HDX system, terminating with a shielded RJ-45
plug connector.
The total length from the Polycom HDX system to the first Polycom
microphone can vary between 18 in and 100 ft. The maximum length between
subsequent microphones is 25 ft.
The following diagram shows an example of longer custom cabling from a
Polycom HDX system to a Polycom microphone or a Polycom SoundStation IP
7000 Phone.

Identify the P1 connector on the Polycom HDX microphone cable
according to the location of the brown heat-shrink tubing as shown on
page 2-48. Remove the P1 connector and skip to step 4. Note that two
separate vendors manufacture these cables, which are electrically
equivalent but have different color coding. If you cannot identify the P1
connector, remove either connector from the cable and continue with step
2.

Using the API with the Maximum Security Profile Enabled
You must log in with a password to start an RS-232 session if the system is
configured with the Security Profile set to Maximum.
You can log in with either the Admin ID and Admin Remote Password or the
User ID and User Remote Password of the Polycom HDX system. The
availability of individual API commands depends on whether you log in using
a User or Admin ID. For a complete list of API commands and parameters
available to the user and admin IDs, refer to Secure RS-232 Interface API
Permissions on page D-1 .
For more information about the Security Profile, refer to the Security
Deployment Guide for Polycom HDX Systems.
Using the API with a LAN Connection
If you have a computer connected to the LAN, you can send API commands
to the Polycom HDX system through Telnet port 24.
1
On the computer, open a command line interface.
2
Start a Telnet session using the Polycom HDX system IP address and port
number — for example, telnet 10.11.12.13 24.
You cannot use Telnet to access the system if Security Mode is enabled.
Using the API Controller Code
In cooperation with the leading touch panel controller manufacturers,
Polycom Video Division is proud to offer its own version of controller code
designed to run on Crestron and AMX systems. This independent code base
was developed specifically to address issues of code compatibility with video
system software releases. It provides a fully executable controller program but
also serves as a guideline for ongoing development using Polycom preferred
methodology and commands.
To download the API controller code, refer to
www.polycom.com/forms/amx_code.html. Additionally, AMX controller
code or Crestron controller code is available for controlling the Polycom
EagleEye HD camera. Companion documents are also available to further
explain how to interface your controller with Polycom video systems and use
the API efficiently.

About the API Commands
Syntax Conventions
The following conventions are used for the API command descriptions in this
chapter. All of the commands are case sensitive.
Convention
Meaning
<param1|param2|param3>
Multiple valid parameters are enclosed in angle brackets and separated by
the pipe (“|”) character.
Example: allowdialing <yes|no|get> shows that the allowdialing
command must be followed by one of the parameters listed.
[param]
Optional parameters are enclosed in square brackets. Quotation marks
indicate strings to be supplied by the user.
[“param”]
Example: teleareacode set ["telephone_area_code"] shows that you can
supply a value for the area code, or omit it and let the default value apply.
You do not need to enclose the actual value in quotes unless it contains a
space.
{a..z}
A range of possible alphanumeric values is enclosed in braces.
Example: abk letter {a..z} shows that the abk command can be used
to return address book entries that begin with an alphanumeric character in
the range specified.
Example: camera near {1..4} shows that the camera command can be
used to select camera 1, 2, 3, or 4 at the near site.
“x”
Quotation marks indicate strings to be supplied by the user. You do not
need to enclose the value in quotes unless it contains a space.
Although the API command parser may accept the minimum number of
characters in a command that makes it unique, you should always use the full
command string.
Availability of Commands
The availability of API commands depends on the type of system, optional
equipment installed or connected, security settings and the software version
installed on the system. If a particular command is not supported on the
system, the command returns feedback such as “error: this command is
not supported on this model” or “command is not available in
current system configuration”. If a setting is configured by a provisioning
service, the command may return feedback such as “this setting is
4–2
Polycom, Inc.
System Commands
controlled by a provisioning service and cannot be changed”. For
more information about provisioned settings, refer to your
provisioning service administrator.
Deprecated commands are included for backward compatibility only and are
not recommended for use with this version. Suitable replacements are noted
for each deprecated command.
Commands that are not listed in this chapter are not supported by Polycom.
Commands might change or be removed at any time. Polycom discourages
integrators from using unpublished commands.
API support is not available for:
•
Telnet ports 23 and 24 when Security Mode is enabled.
•
Software versions for the Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC)
certification.
Command Response Syntax
When you send a command, the system returns responses using the following
syntax, where <CR> indicates a carriage return and <LF> indicates a line feed.
The end of line (EOL) character for the echo is different for serial and LAN
responses. The feedback examples below and elsewhere in the Integrator’s
Reference Manual are based on the serial response.
When Not Registered to Receive Notifications
When your system is not registered to receive any notifications and you send
an API command, an API echo and API acknowledgement are returned.
For example:
•
camera near 2 <CR>API command
returns
camera near 2<LF><CR>API echo
camera near 2<CR><LF>API acknowledgement
When your system is not registered for notifications, always use the API
acknowledgement (<CR><LF>), which indicates that the command was sent,
accepted, and processed. Never use the API echo (<LF><CR>), which only
indicates that you sent an API command but does not indicate whether the API
command you sent was actually processed. For example, you receive an API
echo even if you send an invalid API command. In this case, the API echo
responds by echoing the invalid API command that you attempted to send.
Polycom, Inc.
4–3
Integrator’s Reference Manual for Polycom HDX Systems
When Registered to Receive Notifications
Registering for notifications adds extra line responses in the form of API
registration responses. When your system is already registered to receive
notifications and you send an API command that affects a notification, an API
echo, API acknowledgement, and API registration response are returned. You
may receive multiple API registration responses if you are registered for
multiple notifications that are affected by the API command you are currently
sending.
For example, after your system has already been registered to receive camera
notifications (the notify vidsourcechanges API command enables these
notifications), the following responses are returned when you change the
camera source using the camera near 1 API command:
•
camera near 1 <CR>API command
returns
camera near 1<LF><CR>API echo
camera near 1<CR><LF>API acknowledgement
notification:vidsourcechange:near:1:Main:people<CR><LF>
API registration response
When your system is registered for notifications, always use the API
registration response (<CR><LF>), which indicates that the command was
sent, accepted, and processed. Never use the API echo (<LF><CR>), which
only indicates that you sent an API command but does not indicate whether
the API command you sent was actually processed. For example, you receive
an API echo even if you send an invalid API command. In this case, the API
echo responds by echoing the invalid API command that you attempted to
send.
End Of Line (EOL) Characters When Connected to the API Using a
LAN Connection
In software versions prior to 2.5.0.6, the EOL characters for the echo responses
on a system connected to the LAN and using a Telnet session were as follows:
camera near 2 <CR> API command
returns
camera near 2<CR><CR><LF> API echo
camera near 2<CR><LF> API acknowledgement
Starting with software version 2.5.0.6, the response changed to a single <CR>;
for example:
camera near 2 <CR> API command
returns
camera near 2<CR><LF> API echo
camera near 2<CR><LF> API acknowledgement
4–4
Polycom, Inc.
System Commands
The telnetechoeol command allows you to change the EOL characters of the
API echo to the EOL characters of the serial port echo. See telnetechoeol on
page 4-329 for more details.
Commands that Restart the System
Commands that Restart the System with a Prompt
•
reboot
Commands that Restart the System without a Prompt
•
reboot yes
•
reboot now
•
The Polycom HDX system does not provide flow control. If the connection
is lost through restarting the system or other means, you must re-establish
the connection.
•
The API processes one command at a time.
•
Polycom does not recommend sending multiple commands
simultaneously without a pause or delay between them.
•
For commands with a single action and a single response: A delay of
200 milliseconds between commands is usually sufficient. Examples of
these commands include the commands for switching cameras (camera
near 1), sending content (vcbutton play), and checking the status of the
audio mute (mute near get).
•
For commands with a single action and a more extensive response: The
time required to receive the response, and thus the time between
commands, may be longer than 200 milliseconds. The response length,
which can vary in size, determines the time required to receive the
response. Examples of these commands include the commands for
retrieving the local address book (addrbook all), the global address book
(gaddrbook all), the list of system settings (displayparams), and system
session information (whoami).
•
When developing your program, always allow enough time for the
response to the requested command to complete before sending another
command.
•
Do not send any commands while an incoming or outgoing call is being
established.
•
The API provides feedback status in two ways: registrations or polling.
Additional Tips
Polycom, Inc.
4–5
Integrator’s Reference Manual for Polycom HDX Systems
4–6
•
It is only required that you send registration and notification API
commands once, because the registrations become written into Flash
memory and are retained even upon restarting the system.
•
Polycom recommends putting registrations in the initialization or startup
of Crestron and AMX systems.
•
Registrations are recommended over polling since they will provide status
updates without having to query for changes.
•
Never poll for registrations.
•
Registrations are specific to the port from which they are registered. If you
register for notifications from com port 1, registration will not be sent to
com port 2 or Telnet port 24.

Comments
If the meeting’s end time is more than 31 days from the meeting’s start time,
the response is shortened to starttime+31days, and meetings that start in
that time span are returned.
If an API client is logged in with user-level credentials and if the Polycom HDX
system is configured to hide private meeting information on the web interface,
the API hides the information from the API client and shows the subject of the
meeting as "Private Meeting"; for example:

“addr book name”
The name of the directory (address book) entry. The
name may be up to 25 characters. Use quotation marks
around strings that contain spaces. For example:
“John Doe”.
auto
Dials a video call number dialstr1 at speed of type h323
or h320. Requires the parameters “speed” and “dialstr”.
Allows the user to automatically dial a number. The
system first attempts H.323 and if that fails, rolls over to
H.320. Deprecated. Instead of this command, Polycom
recommends using dial manual and not specifying a
call type.
“speed”
Valid data rate for the network.
“dialstr”, “dialstr1”,
“dialstr2”
Valid ISDN or IP directory number.
manual
Dials a video call number dialstr1 at speed of type h323
or h320. Requires the parameters “speed” and
“dialstr1”.
Use dial manual “speed” “dialstr” “type” when
you do not want automatic call rollover or when the
dialstring might not convey the intended transport (for
example, an extension with an IP gateway might look
like an ISDN number, but in fact corresponds to an IP
address).

Comments
When searching for feedback from the dial command, expect to see the set of
described strings as many times as there are channels in the call.
When initiating a multipoint call or adding multiple sites to a multipoint call
over ISDN, you must be sure that the total call rate does not exceed the
bandwidth of the ISDN interface. Otherwise, one of the calls may not connect.
For example, the total ISDN bandwidth for a T1 line is 1544 kbit/s. Thus,
making the following five calls in succession violates the ISDN bandwidth
rule, because the total ISDN bandwidth would require 1920 kbit/s (1920 =
384 * 5), and one of the calls may not connect:
•
dial manual 384 5551212
dial manual 384 5561212
dial manual 384 5571212
dial manual 384 5581212
dial manual 384 5591212
Similarly, making the following two calls in a multipoint call where sites 1, 2,
and 3 are already connected at 256 kbits/s each violates the ISDN bandwidth
rule. This is because the total ISDN bandwidth required becomes 1792 kbits/s
(1792 = 256 * 3 + 512 * 2), and one of these two new calls may not connect:
•
dial manual 512 5581212
dial manual 512 5591212
Note: The ISDN bandwidth rule is not applicable to IP calls and only applies
when multiple ISDN dial commands are issued in succession without waiting
for the active call notification (i.e., active: call[36] speed[128]) between dial
commands. Adding single calls to a multipoint call and then waiting for the
active call notification does not break the rule, because the system downspeeds
calls to meet the required ISDN bandwidth limitations.

echo
Prints “string” back to the API client screen.
Syntax
echo “string”
Parameter
Description
“string”
Text to be printed to the screen.
Feedback Examples
•
echo End of abk range results
returns
End of abk range results
Comments
Certain API commands print multiple lines without any delimiter string to
notify end of command response. This forces a control panel program to guess
when the command's response string is going to end. In those scenarios,
control panel can issue the legacy command followed by echo command with
a delimiter string of its choosing. Once legacy command's response ends, echo
command gets processed, which results in the delimiter string printed to the
API client.

ipaddress get command, which returns the current IP address of the system
if it has an active LAN connection, else it returns 0.0.0.0.
The definition of "currently configured IPv4 address” depends on the IPv4
address configuration settings:

•
If the Connect to My LAN setting is disabled, then 0.0.0.0 is returned.
Otherwise, the definition depends on the IP Address (IPv4) setting.
•
If the IP address is set manually the configured IP address is returned,
regardless of whether the LAN connection is currently active.
•
If the IP address is obtained automatically, the currently-assigned address
is returned, or 0.0.0.0 is returned if there is no active connection.

Comments
When importing XML-formatted data, the imported data must be in the same
format as was obtained from the Polycom HDX system via the exportdirectory
command on page 4-129 or the export directory utility in the web interface.
Duplicate entries are overwritten; other entries in the imported directory are
added into the system's local directory.
All of the lines entered into the session after importdirectory is issued are
interpreted as directory data.
Issuing the importcomplete command on its own line indicates that the
directory import is complete.
If no data is received for 60 seconds during import, the import ends, and an
"importdirectory timed out" error response is sent to the API session. All
previous data entered is ignored.
Additional usage notes:
•
Polycom HDX systems running software version 2.6 or later can import
directory data exported from systems running version 2.6 and earlier
versions.
•
Polycom HDX systems running software versions earlier than 2.6 cannot
import directory data exported by systems running software version 2.6 or
later.

Comments
The notify callstatus command registers the current API session for call
status notifications. The API client receives call status notifications as a call
progresses.
Registration for status notifications is session-specific. For example,
registering for alerts in a Telnet session does not return alerts in a
simultaneous RS-232 session with the same system.
The notify captions command registers the current API session to receive
notifications as closed captions are displayed. If closed captions are dropped
for some reason, no notification is received. This command is typically used
for capturing captions being displayed for archival purpose.
Duplicate registrations produce another success response. The notify setting
remains in effect, even if you restart the system or update the software with
system settings saved.

Call-by-call is a number from 0 to 31, which is optionally sent to an upstream
telephone company switch, if required. For example, specify a value of 6 for a
T1 PRI network interface module that is directly connected to an ATT 5ESS
switch, which is provisioned with Accunet. You must consult with the
telephone company service provider to determine whether a call-by-call value
is required for a particular PRI line. For most cases, the default value of 0 is
correct. Always use the value 0 when connected to a PBX. A non-zero value
should not be required in Europe. Values greater than 31 are reserved for
internal use and must not be used.

Important PRI Channel Information
Outgoing Call. For an outgoing call, the system uses the first active and
available channel starting with the lowest number from the channel range
(1-23 for a PRI T1 and 1-30 for a PRI E1). If an additional channel is needed, the
system chooses the next incremental number. For example, if channels 1
4–272
Polycom, Inc.
System Commands
through 7 are inactive, but 8 is active and available, then 8 is the first channel
that can be used by the system to place an outgoing call. If an additional
channel is needed, the system will use the next available active channel in the
range (which could be 9, and so on).
Incoming Calls. For incoming calls, the system may use the highest numbered
channel in the range and, if needed, proceed to the next channel number in
descending order, depending on the type of third-party equipment attached to
the system. For example, an incoming call arrives on channel 23, then 22, 21,
and so on.
Dedicated full PRI T1 or E1 Line. All channels should be active for a full T1
or E1 line dedicated to your system.
Fractional PRI T1 or E1. Channel selection should be handled by your PRI
network administrator.
PRI E1 Channel Information. The PRI Status screen (for E1) shows 30
channels. However, E1 trunk lines have 32 timeslots, numbered 0 - 31.
Timeslot 0 is used for framing, and timeslot 16 is used for call signaling (the D
channel). The remaining 30 timeslots are used as bearer (data) channels. In call
signaling between our equipment and the switch, these channels are
numbered 1-15, 17-31. But the PRI Status screen numbers these channels
contiguously in the range 1-30. Therefore, on the PRI Status screen, channels
1-15 control the status of timeslots 1-15, and channels 16-30 control the status
of timeslots 17-31.

isdn
With this parameter, the numbering plan is identified to
the upstream switch as ISDN, and the number type,
which is either national or international, is determined
from the dialed phone number. If the dialed phone
number starts with the international dialing prefix that is
currently selected, the type is set to the international
and the prefix is removed from the number before the
number is sent to the upstream switch. Otherwise, the
number is marked as national and passed to the
upstream switch without modification.
unknown
This is the default selection. With this parameter, the
numbering plan and number type are sent to the
upstream as unknown, and the dialed phone number is
sent without notification. The unknown parameter is
preferred and should work with all properly configured
PBXs and with most telephone company switches. A
notable exception in North America is an ATT 5ESS
switch, which is provisioned with Accunet, or an ATT
4ESS switch. For these switches, set the numbering
type to ISDN.

If the call is placed from Directory screen or Favorites screen, the Polycom
HDX system returns the display name of the endpoint being called.
•
If the call is placed from the Place a Call screen, and the number is in the
Polycom HDX system directory, the display name of the directory entry is
returned. If the number is not in the Polycom HDX system directory, the
IP number is returned as the display name.
In incoming calls, if the Polycom HDX system receives caller ID information,
or if the the caller number is already in the Polycom HDX system directory, the
caller ID name or the Polycom HDX system display name will be returned as
the display name. If there is no caller ID information and the number is not in
the Polycom HDX system directory, the IP address is returned as the display
name.

Room Design and Layout
Reprinted from the Basics of Audio and Visual Systems Design: Revised Edition,
Chapter 12, “Videoconferencing” written by Scott Sharer, CTS, and Jim Smith, CVE,
CTS, copyright 2003, with permission of InfoComm International®
www.infocomm.org
For clarity of discussion, we have divided this section into the following
sub-sections:
•
Room construction, including wall construction, windows and window
treatments, ceilings and HVAC;
•
Interior design and finishes;
•
Furniture design, including placement and layout;
•
Room acoustics and acoustic treatment; and
•
Room lighting.
The initial layout and construction of the space affects all the elements that are
discussed in other sections of this book [Basics of Audio and Visual Systems
Design], including acoustic characteristics and performance, general and
ambient light control, and overall comfort.
Room Requirements
We begin with general room requirements. The total floor space required for
VC is much greater than we have become used to for general local presentation
and meeting. In architectural terms it is not uncommon to find a rule-of-thumb
applied that allows for up to 15 square feet of floor space per participant in a
traditional presentation or meeting room. If there is a front-of-room presenter
position at a podium, and if there is some use of in-room technology
(projection devices, whiteboards, etc.), then this figure may increase to as
much as 20 square feet of floor space per participant, but rarely any more than
that.
It is here that we have our first conflict. In videoconferencing we have to
consider not only the issues related to local viewing and hearing but also the
issues of being seen and heard by people at the far-end of the connection. This
Polycom, Inc.
A–1
Integrator’s Reference Manual for Polycom HDX Systems
means that we must consider sight lines and angles of participant interaction
that go beyond traditional presentation environments. As a rule we should
allow not less than 30 square feet and generally not more than 45 square feet
of floor space per participant in a videoconference space. Though two to three
times what we are used to allowing, this amount ensures that local
participants will see one another and the display of local and remote electronic
images. It also ensures that participants at the far-end will see and hear
everyone arriving at their location via the connection, and that all will see and
hear at a level of quality that does not detract and, in the best deployment,
even enhances the communications.
Having determined the required size of the space, we can move on to the
actual renovation or construction of the space itself. Again the requirements
here are generally less forgiving than those applied in local-only meeting
spaces. In the most basic sense this is because, by sheer definition, at least some
of the participants in a conference-based meeting are not actually in the room.
As such, we cannot count on the typical human mechanisms (the human ears
and brain and our ability to locate sound in three-dimensional space) to
manage any acoustic anomalies.
If we are, for example, in a room that is adjacent to a double-door entry to the
building, then knowing this we can take the inevitable doorway noise into
account as we filter the sounds we hear both inside the meeting room and
coming from that adjacent entryway. Within our own physical and local
environment we have the ability to isolate local unwanted noise from local
“sound of interest” (voices of other people, etc.), and place the unwanted noise
in an inferior position in our conscious thought pattern. We are able to do this
because we know where the noise is coming from and (usually) what is
causing it. We may be annoyed by the noise, but we generally are able to
ignore it. As soon as we add conferencing to the meeting equation, however,
we add the element of electronic pickup and reproduction of all sounds. For
the people at the far-end, the unwanted noise is much more difficult (if not
impossible) to ignore. They do not have the ability to isolate it in
three-dimensional space (the microphones eliminate the spatial reference) and
they often do not know what is making the noise. The brain of the far-end
participant will devote more and more conscious observation and thought
energy to trying to work out these elements, in an attempt to isolate and finally
“ignore” the unwanted sound. We have already stated that they cannot do
this, however, due to the electronic separation between the locations. Thus
they are left with an impossible task that takes up more and more thought
energy, eroding the perceived quality of the spoken communication over time.
Frustration and exasperation quickly set in, and the communication flow
quickly falls apart.
This, then, is one reason we must pay even greater attention to the acoustic and
visual issues for any presentation space that will be connected via conference
to another. Minor, seemingly insignificant anomalies we often ignore in the
local environment become significant impediments to smooth communication
with people at the far-end of any connection. In short, we must always ask
ourselves, “What does this look like and sound like to the people at the
farend?”

Room Design and Layout
In order to guarantee that the final conference environment will have a solid
foundation, we begin with the construction of the walls, floors and ceilings for
videoconference spaces.
Walls
Conference room walls should be built from slab to slab. That is, there should
be no gaps from the concrete of one floor to the concrete of the next floor.
Resilient, gypsum board mountings should be used to close any gaps. The
thickness of the gypsum board should be 5/8” or more (one layer of 5/8” and
one layer of 1/2” bonded together would be ideal) on the inside of the room,
with 1/2” thick (or as required by local building codes) appropriate for the
outside of the walls. There should always be a difference in thickness between
the materials used on the inner versus the outer walls. That difference in
thickness subdues mechanical coupling (vibration) between the two layers. A
good overall wall thickness is 6”. It is recommended that “offset stud”
construction be used, typically a 6” header and footer with 3.5” verticals
attached in an alternating pattern one toward the outside of the footer, the next
toward the inside and so on.
Fiberglass dense batting or mineral rock wool, 4” to 6” thick (the equivalent of
R-11 to R-13) should be placed in the wall space. The thickness of the batting
is not critical. The critical aspect is that it must be loosely placed in the wall
space, not compacted to fit. The resultant wall will have excellent acoustic
isolation from the outside world. More significant acoustic isolation can be
achieved by placing an additional barrier layer within the wall space.
Typically this barrier will be made of a dense polymer material, about 1/8”
thick, and the improvement regarding loss of sound transmitted through the
wall will be roughly a factor of 10. These materials are available from a variety
of manufacturers.
Windows
Windows usually present the equivalent of an acoustic nightmare (as well as
altering the way a camera renders colors and brightness). They not only
transmit room sound, but also allow unwanted outside noise to intrude on the
conference space. In the event that windows cannot be avoided, it becomes
essential that window treatment of some sort be used. This treatment should
match the interior look and feel of the space, while providing a high level of
sound and light block. Typically a heavyweight drape (24 ounces or more) of
heavy fullness (not less than 6” fullness on not less than 8” centers per fold) is
preferred. In all cases, the use of sheer draperies or standard vertical or
horizontal blinds should be avoided, due to their inherent inefficiency in
blocking sound and light, and the fine lines they create within the camera field
of view.

Integrator’s Reference Manual for Polycom HDX Systems
Ceiling Tiles
These should be high-quality acoustic tiles, ideally 1”- thick compressed
densecore fiberglass. An added benefit of this kind of ceiling tile is that it
works well with the indirect lighting as specified elsewhere in this section. To
reduce any extraneous noise from leaving or entering the room via the ceiling
space, the ceiling tiles can be blanketed completely from the plenum side, with
a minimum of 6”- thick unfaced dense fiberglass batting or mineral rock wool,
(the equivalent of R-15 to R-19). Here again, a barrier layer will improve the
performance, but all local building codes must be followed for allowable
materials in the various aspects of room acoustic modifications. To make entry
and exit from the ceiling space easier, the blanket and barrier do not need to
rest on the ceiling tiles, but may be suspended above it.
Air Conditioning
It is critical that all air-handling equipment (blowers, heat exchangers,
solenoid valves, etc.) be located outside the physical meeting room space. This
will prevent the noise burden associated with such equipment from affecting
the participants of any meetings held in the room. Location of air-handling
equipment within the ceiling space of a conference room often renders that
room unusable for video or audio-only conferencing.
The air vents should be of open construction to eliminate “wind noise” while
the system is running. These vents normally are specified as “low-velocity”
diffusers. The number of air vents within the room should be sufficient to
maintain a consistent temperature throughout the space. All HVAC ducts and
diffusers should be oversized for the general application in the space, with
minimum 2’ diameter insulated flexible ducts and matching 2’ noise
dampening diffusers generally best. All ducts should be installed with gradual
bends and curves rather than rigid 90-degree corners. This will minimize
“thunder” sounds as the initial air pushes through the ductwork and into the
room.
There should be a thermostat to control this specific room system
independently of the rest of the building, and that control should be located
within the room.
Important: Allow an additional 5,000 BTU of cooling capacity for a standard
“roll-about” singlemonitor VC system with extended in-room peripherals
(PC, document camera, scan converter, etc.) and a minimum of 10,000 BTU for
a dual display multimedia presentation system with large screen displays. For
the comfort of the participants, the room must accommodate these heat loads,
plus the heat load of a room full of people, with minimal temperature rise.

Wall colors within the field of view of the camera have a significant impact on
the far-end perception of the room video quality. Certain colors are better
suited to video rooms than others. The electronics and software of the
videoconferencing system “builds” the images at the far-end from a gray/blue
reference image. When there is a minimal difference between the room
background and the reference image color, the codec has an easier time
turning the image into numbers, with the result that the far-end will see a
much higher quality video presentation. In general, light gray with just a touch
of blue seems to work best. For rooms that have marginal lighting, slightly
darker colors are quite useful.
In keeping with these color recommendations, the acoustic panels (discussed
elsewhere in this section) should be ordered in light colors such as silver-gray,
quartz or champagne for panels within the camera field of view. For aesthetics,
however, panels may be alternated in color along the wall.
Furniture
As we have noted, VC rooms should be slightly on the large side for the typical
number of attendees. The placement of furniture should present a natural
rapport with the videoconference system, but shouldn’t preclude the local
interaction of conference participants. Doorways used for access to the space
usually should be within the view of one of the camera presets to prevent the
perception from the far-end that people could come into their meeting unseen.
Doorways should not, however, be in constant, direct view of the camera
system, as this may cause unwanted distractions and movement of people in
the picture field.
Any tables within the conference environment should have a light top surface.
Glossy tops should be avoided, as should strong colors or any bold wood
grain. If glossy or saturated color surfaces are unavoidable, then proper
lighting can help reduce (but not necessarily eliminate) their ill effects. The
best table surface color is a flat satin finish, in neutral gray. In cases where the
worst possible surfaces are present, the proper surface color effect can be
achieved by using a table covering, put in place only when the room is being
used for videoconferencing. This will, however, create problems related to the
use of access ports in the tables or movement of end-user items across the
surface.
Acoustics
Additional general elements related to the interior finish details for the space
include acoustics. In terms of ambient noise level, the acoustic design goal for
any conference- enabled room is at least NC-30 (NoiseCriteria-30). This level
of specification dictates a very quiet space (somewhere around 40-dBCSPL
Polycom, Inc.
A–5
Integrator’s Reference Manual for Polycom HDX Systems
ambient noise level). A room built to the description found elsewhere in this
section will usually fall between NC-30 and NC-35. The actual NC value is not
critical; what is important is that the room be built with the intent and care
required to achieve the low noise rating. Typically in architectural design, a
site evaluation and analysis are required to certify the noise performance of a
given space. The quieter the room, the easier it is to hear others in the same
room as well as be heard by others who are participating via conference
connection to a far-end location (or locations).
Almost every conference room of medium to large size (larger than 12’x15’)
requires some level of acoustic treatment to provide good speech-rendering to
other conference sites. The quality differences lie in the areas of intelligibility
and consistency of loudness as presented to the far-end. While the people at
the far-end may hear the sounds coming to them, it may be hard for them
clearly to distinguish all of the vowels, consonants, inflections and nuances of
actual human speech communication. (We all know that it is not simply what
you say but how you say it—i.e., the inflections and intonations—that makes
the difference in perceived meaning in human communications.)
Good audio practice dictates that the treated surfaces be composed of at least
two nonparallel walls. And, as the VCS hardware is a potential source of
distracting fan noises, the walls to be treated should include the wall
immediately behind the VCS hardware, whenever this hardware is within the
conference room proper. To help prevent meeting audio from leaking into
adjoining hallways or offices, the walls along those areas also should be
treated.
Approximately 50 percent of the wall area needs be covered with acoustic
panels. The type recommended is 1” thick compressed, dense-core fiberglass,
fabric-covered, or equivalent, with a SABIN (sound absorption index) value of
0.9 average. This specification is sometimes referred to as NRC (noise
reduction coefficient). If reduction of sound passing through is required, then
an additional barrier layer is laminated to the dense-core material, usually
3/8” thick fiber compression board. The barrier layer is placed against the
existing wall material, then the acoustic absorption panels are placed on the
interior-room side of that. The barrier panels will have a SABIN of 0.9, but will
have an additional specification of an STC (sound transmission coefficient) of
20. STC is a measure of the amount of reduction in loudness of sound passing
through the material. Having an STC rating of 20 means there is a factor of 10
reduction in the amount of sound passing through that material. A
high-quality conference room wall usually has an STC of 60 or more—that is,
less than 1/1,000 of the sound in the room leaks through the wall.
Room Lighting
The brightness of the lighting in a videoconference room plays an important
role in determining the far-end view of the meeting. When there are low to
moderate amounts of light—20fc to 35fc (footcandles), typical office
lighting—the distance range of “in focus” objects (depth-of-field) usually is
A–6
Polycom, Inc.
Room Design and Layout
only 2’ or 3’ from nearest in-focus to furthest in-focus. With bright light (70fc
or more) the range of in-focus objects can more than double. Participants at the
far-end will see more people in sharp focus, and the codec will have an easier
time encoding the image.
Bright standard direct fluorescent lighting has the undesirable side effect of
being harsh for the local participants. In addition, the direct down lighting
casts significant “drop shadows.” The result is undue stress among
participants.
The best plan for videoconferencing is to use indirect lighting for 80 to 85
percent of the light, and evenly distributed direct lighting for the remaining 15
to 20 percent. The indirect light will help minimize shadows on the faces of the
participants, and make the room more comfortable for viewing the far-end on
the TV monitor. The direct light can be used to create backlight separation
between foreground and background objects or surfaces.
There should be not less than 55fc and ideally as much as 75fc of light (770lux)
on the faces of the participants in the facial field as viewed by the camera in the
conference space. The light should be completely even across the field of
measure or view, and of one consistent color temperature.
To best meet these requirements, indirect fluorescent lighting most often is
recommended. This type of lighting works by using the upper walls and
ceiling as diffuse reflectors for the light. The usual recommended color
temperature for these is 3,000 to 3,800 degrees Kelvin. If there is a significant
quantity of outdoor light entering the room, the lamps should be more than
5,500 degrees Kelvin.
Light Fixtures
The light fixtures generally recommended for indirect lighting are available
from a number of manufacturers. They typically are three-tube, 8” oval
indirect up-lights, though they may take the form of chandelier-style pendant
lights, wall sconces, cove lights or flushmounted specialized troughs. Many
manufacturers work closely with contractors and lighting designers to ensure
that the correct light levels and shadow-free zones are designed into the room,
especially when used for videoconferencing. Lamps for these fixtures are
available in a variety of specified color temperatures from numerous
manufacturers, including Sylvania, General Electric and Osram/Phillips.
Indirect fixtures are available in a number of different designs or “looks,” and
can be purchased in configurations that will complement and not detract from
the interior design of the space.
Lighting layout recommendations and determination of the number of
fixtures needed are handled either by the architectural design firm or by
submitting a complete floor plan, including reflected ceiling, walls and
furniture placement, to fixture vendors. The vendors will analyze the plans
and return a finished lighting layout to the customer, detailing the number of
fixtures, placement and required wiring.

It is important to remember that the use of traditional meeting room
downcans—even those that have color-corrected light sources—for any
lighting in the field of view that may include human faces is to be avoided at
all costs. These will result in extremely uneven fields of light, or pools, and
heavy, unnatural shadows on the faces of the participants.
Room Preparation Conclusion
When we follow the above guidelines we dramatically improve the odds for
success in the final deployment of live bi-directional conference-based human
communications. An added benefit is that this approach dramatically
enhances the effectiveness of the room as it operates for more traditional
meetings and presentations. The environment is more comfortable and
flexible, and less dependent on specialized electronics for “fixing” deficiencies
in the environment.
Audio Elements
Once the space is prepared, we can focus on integration of the various
audiovisual tools within the environment: audio, video and control.
Audio Input
The primary input device for the audio portion of any conference system is the
microphone. Elsewhere in this book [Basics of Audio and Visual Systems Design]
we have discussed how these devices operate within a given acoustic
environment. We turn now to a short discussion of how these elements
operate within a conference environment, where such factors as
“three-to-one” rules and “critical distance” often are pushed to the limit or
violated entirely.
When sound travels in a room, it follows “the inverse square law.” This means
that the sound level heard at a microphone drops by a factor of four every time
the distance doubles. Another important consideration in room audio design
is the concept of “critical distance,” or the distance at which the loudness of the
room background noise plus reverberation is less than one tenth of the
loudness of voices getting to a particular microphone. (This definition is the
result of research conducted by Don and Carolyn Davis. that is referenced in
the chapter “Designing for Intelligibility” in the Handbook for Sound
Engineers.1)

Sound Engineers: The New Audio Cyclopedia, ed. Glen Ballou (Indianapolis:

Room Design and Layout
As an example, we will work with a room having an ambient noise level of
approximately 60dBA-SPL. A person speaking in a normal voice is 72dBA-SPL
at about 2’ distance. At 4’ the loudness drops to approximately 66dBA-SPL.
This already is farther than the critical distance criteria allow, given the
ambient noise level. At 8’ distance, a normal speaking voice is approximately
60dBA-SPL. Now the voice energy and the room background noise are about
equal. For “send” audio systems in a room to work correctly, therefore, the
room noise level would have to be below 40-45dBA-SPL at the microphones at
all times. This gives us some measure by which we can begin to plan the
microphone array within a space, including selection based on pickup pattern,
sensitivity, noise rejection and signal-to-noise in relation to the ambient noise
floor or level within the space. The good news is that a room designed and
built as described in this section will provide an acoustic space where almost
any properly configured and installed audio system can operate with very
good results.
Perhaps the most difficult issue for any room designer or system planner is
actual microphone placement within the space. Given the fact that many
people view conference table space as sacred (to be used for papers, laptops,
coffee cups and other end-user items), there often is a great deal of pressure to
place the local microphones on the ceiling instead of on the table surface. But
this approach must be taken with great caution. We have already seen the
dramatic impact of changes in the distance between people (their mouths) and
the microphone. Ceiling systems generally place microphones farther away
from the participants’ mouths, not closer; critical distance calculations may
eliminate ceiling placement from consideration for this reason alone. In
addition, the ceiling surface generally is one of the noisiest areas of the room.
Proximity to HVAC ducts and vents, attachment of tiles and runners to
building members that are prone to vibration and shaking, and proximity to
noise from other spaces migrating through the plenum make this area one of
the least desirable for placement of microphones. This doesn’t, however, keep
people from looking at this broad open surface as the best place for
microphones, to “get them off the table.”
If ceiling placement is chosen, the system planner must select the components
with great care from a manufacturer that specializes in this type of audio voice
reinforcement. The manufacturer must be skilled in live audio and capable of
installing the components (that is, being both able and willing to locate
microphones at precisely measured distances from speakers, and locating
those speakers at precisely measured intervals from each other and from the
walls) to extremely tight tolerances. The system provider must fully inform the
endusers of the potential downside effects of this approach. In any event,
simply mounting a standard tabletop microphone on the ceiling tiles or
implementing this solution in an ambient noise environment of 45dBA-SPL or
greater will all but guarantee costly failure. No amount of post-microphone
processing will fix the problems.

Audio Output
For conference communication we do not really care about producing the
thundering roar of jet aircraft engines, or other sounds reproduced on TV or in
the movies. We are interested in reproducing the human voice. The tone,
intonation, pitch and level of people speaking from the far-end should sound
as much as possible like the sound they would make if they were speaking in
the room. Given what has been covered in other sections of this book [Basics of
Audio and Visual Systems Design], we will touch base here on a couple of simple,
basic elements of the speaker technology we deploy in the conference room.
These basics fall into three subcategories: direction, power and
range/frequency response.
Direction
As human beings, we feel most comfortable when the voice we hear appears
to come from the same direction as the image of the person speaking. This
means that reliance on ceiling speakers alone is not an ideal practice when the
system is used for videoconferencing. In many small and medium-sized
systems, front-firing speakers alone can provide proper direction and
adequate coverage. Larger rooms (greater than 12’x15’) probably need both
front-firing and side or top-fill speakers in order to maintain proper coverage
at nominal power levels.
In planning systems for larger rooms, we need to take advantage of the HAAS
effect. Basically stated, this is the human brain’s interpretation of sound
direction when the same sound arrives at the ear from two or more directions
within a certain time period. We attribute the direction of the sound to the
direction from which the sound is first perceived, even if it is mixed with that
same sound arriving from a completely different direction, as long as the two
(or more) instances of the sound are within about 30ms of one another. Since
sound travels faster electronically than it travels through the open air we may
need to add audio delay to the side firing or ceiling speaker arrays in order to
keep the primary perceived point source as the front of room/front-firing
speakers.
Power
Power is a function of loudspeaker efficiency and total available system
power. Most speakers operate in a power range that is broader than the range
in which they operate without distortion. For the purpose of conference
communication, we are interested in sound that has little or no distortion.
Sound that is reproduced accurately (with no distortion) will most accurately
represent the voice of the people from the far-end (our primary goal). Accurate
reproduction also will aid the echo-cancellation circuitry in the system,
minimizing the amount of echo that the system sends back to the people at the
far-end, and thereby increasing perceived ease of intelligibility and
understanding. Remember that any distortions present in the playback audio
system—whether harmonic, amplitude (gain compression) or temporal (time
A–10
Polycom, Inc.
Room Design and Layout
delays)—will be recognized by the echo canceller as “new audio information,”
and it will send those distortions to the far-end, perhaps wreaking havoc on
the system audio quality. In short, speaker power should be matched to
overall audio subsystem power. The speakers should provide adequate
coverage and be able to present approximately 80 to 85dBA-SPL (continuous)
at the local site with the system operating at nominal power utilization, and
have a peak reserve of 15 to 20dB before distortion.
Range/Frequency Response
The human ear is able to hear sounds in a very wide range of frequencies (as
low as 70Hz and as high as 12,000Hz). The human voice is able to produce
sounds in a narrower range (100Hz to 8,000Hz). Most spoken communication
occurs, however, in a range that is only 150Hz to about 6,000Hz. This means
that we need to select speakers that operate with ideal performance in a fairly
narrow range for human voice (as opposed to speakers used for music, that
may have ranges of 20Hz to 20,000Hz). We must also be alert to the crossover
characteristics of the speakers we select. Many coaxial and paraxial speakers
have their crossover within the middle audio frequencies, thereby inducing
potential distortion within the spoken frequency range and creating anomalies
within the system that hinder voice communication.
Video Elements
As a general rule, any display used in a videoconferencing environment
should be sized for the number of attendees, the physical distances involved
and the type of material presented onscreen. The screen size should allow for
clear and easy viewing at the various distances experienced within the room.
A measure of required screen size that often is applied to projection
technology is: no closer than 1.5 times the diagonal measure and no farther
than 7 times that measure. Nobody should have to sit closer than 2 times the
screen diagonal measure, nor farther than 8 times that measure.
Direct viewed tube-type displays (monitors) almost always are sharpest and
brightest in a videoconferencing environment. “Retro-projector cabinet”
displays (which look like largescreen TVs) are next in sharpness and
brightness, and “front-screen” projectors come in last. Glare and uncontrolled
ambient room lighting adversely affect the quality of the image most with
front-screen projectors and least with direct view tubes. A very limited
number of frontscreen projection systems have sufficient brightness and
contrast to be useful in a properly lit videoconference room.

Video Projection for Use in Videoconference
Many installations make use of video projection devices. The most important
thing to remember in the planning of video projection for a videoconference
space is that front projection is vastly inferior to rear projection. Front
projection systems are less expensive and easier to implement, but the
conflicting interest between the camera and the projection display makes this
form of display a very poor choice. Front projection setups operate best when
the lighting in the room is dimmed or doused. When this is done, the
videoconference cameras can no longer operate, since they require even,
bright, color-corrected light. A direct conflict between these two technologies
is clear. In the event that a rear projection room cannot be set aside,
retro-projection units can be purchased from a number of manufacturers.
These units normally are available in sizes ranging from 40” to 72” diagonal
measure. To display high-quality video while maintaining optimum lighting
for interactive video meetings will require a projector of the “light-valve” or
DLP™ class.
Regardless of the exact type of projector selected and the exact nature of “front
versus rear,” there are certain essential rules for projector placement. The goal
in projection is to get the image beam to aim directly into the audience’s eyes.
In Western cultures the average distance from the floor to a seated person’s eye
is 4’. That distance becomes the target for the direct beam of the projector.
Again keep in mind that front projection should be avoided except in the most
extreme cases. If it is employed at all it must be used with an extremely bright
projector (2,500 lumens or greater for any space smaller than 25’x40’).
Cameras
There usually is a “main” or “local people” camera positioned on top center of
the display, so that it can “see” the participants and anything necessary at the
sides of the room, using pan and tilt features. If individual presentations may
be made from the side or “front of audience” area of the room, an additional
camera should be located at the back of the room, also mounted to allow a
view of the presenters when necessary. Some cameras contain an active
camera pointing system that also can be used effectively, given proper care in
the mounting of the camera assembly. The area immediately surrounding the
camera assembly needs to be acoustically “dead” to ensure that the voice
tracking and pointing algorithms work correctly. This is another reason to pay
close attention to the acoustic environment and acoustic treatment of any
space intended for use with this type of camera system.
If local presentation is blended with VC for any events, we must consider the
needs of the presenter who will not be “facing” the local image or inbound
image displays used by the main body of the local audience. One or two
monitors (and a camera) should be mounted at the back of the “audience-end”
of the room, with the horizontal centerline at approximately 5’ from the floor
for ease of presentation interaction between the presenter and the group(s) at
the farend(s). Remember that, with the exception of PC-based information that
is not in a standard composite narrowband video format, any information we
A–12
Polycom, Inc.
Room Design and Layout
wish to “show” or “view” must be translated to video, most often with some
sort of camera mechanism. Document cameras, 35mm slide-to-video units,
video scanners and scan conversion devices all are designed to take one format
of source material and convert it to a standard video signal that can be
digitized, shipped to the far-end(s), and converted back to composite video for
display. Which devices are selected and how they are used depends entirely
on the needs and goals of the end-users of the system(s) and the format of their
source materials.
Room Control Elements
To give all participants the easiest use of the room for any and all presentation
or conference purposes, a fully integrated room controller is recommended. It
is important that one controller operate all devices in the room so that only one
user interface needs to be learned by those managing the facility. The common
controller also makes it much easier to expand and enhance room capabilities
over time by adding or upgrading equipment. A proper room controller can
operate and coordinate the use of lighting, curtains, displays, audio devices,
VCRs and slide projectors, as well as all the conferencing equipment,
including any network-related control needed. In lieu of a complete control
system, a limited functionality controller can be located at the presentation
interface panel to control the switching and routing of the computer graphics
and configure the overhead camera video paths.
It is strongly advised that at least 20 percent of the time spent developing a
videoconferencing room be devoted to this important sub-system, as it will
complete the integration of the conference and presentation environment.
And remember that simpler is always better. People do not pay for technology.
They pay for the benefits that technology can bring. The doorway to those
benefits is a simple, straightforward and intuitive user control.

Status Display
The call status can be displayed in a number of ways. The getcallstate
command on page 4-158 returns a table listing the status, speed, and dialed
number of current calls.
To display real-time status on individual B channels (incoming or outgoing
calls), either register the API session with the callstate command on page 4-62,
or start an outbound call with the dial command on page 4-95. These two
commands will cause the system to re-direct the B channel status messages to
the session which has issued one of these two commands. For example, if the
RS-232 device issues a dial command, then call status is directed to the RS-232
port; if a later session on a Telnet port issues a dial command, then call status
is also directed to that Telnet port.

DTMF Dialing
The Polycom HDX 9000 series systems generate the following tip/ring signal
levels:
C–2
•
Low-frequency tone: -10.2 dBV, -8.0 dBm when AC termination of the line
is 600 Ohms
•
High-frequency tone: -8.2 dBV, -6.0 dBm when AC termination of the line
is 600 Ohms
Polycom, Inc.
Polycom HDX 9000 Series Specifications
•
The system seizes the line and waits 1.5 seconds. The number is then
dialed with a 80 ms tone period followed by a 80 ms silence period for each
digit.
Remote Control
This section provides information about the IR signals for Polycom HDX
systems.
This information is provided for reference only. Polycom claims no responsibility or
liability for programmed third-party remote control devices.
Notes
•
Wake up – 2.6 ms on; 2.6 ms off
•
0–559 µs (22 pulses at 38 KHz) on; 845 µs (33 pulses at 38 KHz) off
•
1–845 µs (33 pulses at 38 KHz) on; 1192 µs (46 pulses at 38 KHz) off
•
EOM–559 µs (22 pulses at 38 KHz) on
•
System Code consists of a User ID field (upper nibble) and the Polycom
Vender Code (lower nibble) with value 0x5. The default User ID value is
0x3, so the default System Code value is 00110101 or 0x35.
•
Parity is a 2-bit field consisting of a parity bit (b1) and a toggle bit (b0).
Parity is even.
•
Inter-burst timing is 2200 pulse times at 38.062 KHz or 57.8 ms
•
38.062 KHz signal is at 1/3 duty cycle to LED
•
Multi-bit fields are transmitted most significant bit first
•
Bits are labeled b0..bn, where b0 is the least significant bit
Protocol is: <Wake up> + <System Code> + <Key Code> + <Parity> + <EOM>
